At The Gay Bar

bush_al_jazeera

Besides their excellent coverage of the Election 2000 media war, our friends at BushOut.tv also do a diligent job tracking the evolution of interactive campaign media.

On their site today, they have two recent examples. One is an internet ad created by the Democratic National Committee. The ad, titled “Mistakes Were Made,” uses President Bush’s awkward press conference responses against him.

They also highlight an independent flash video called “Gay Bar”. Taking clips from George Bush’s meeting last week with Tony Blair, the video is a hybrid between an interactive political parody and a music video.

Ever since MoveOn’s Bush In 30 Seconds contest late last year, flash movies have become a legitimate form of campaign media.
